In today’s economy and society, performance analyses of the government attract more and more attention. This paper presents an evaluation of the Egyptian government of using R&D expenditure from (1996 to 2008) using data envelopment analysis (DEA). Special emphasis was placed on how to present the DEA results to government to provide more guidance to it on what to manage and how to accomplish the changes.


Key words: Endogenous growth theory, DEA, innovation, R&D.
